Remarks (public):Entoloma elodes can easily be distinguished from the closely related E. jubatum and E. porphyrophaeum by colour, expanding pileus, strongly farinaceous smell and habitat in living Sphagnum. Entoloma fuscomarginatum differs in having a brown lamella edge.

Vern. name. - Veenmossatijnzwam.
Pileus 25-37 mm, obtusely conical to convex, soon expanding, finally applanate, with or without depressed centre, but usually umbonate, with involute margin at least when young, weakly hygrophanous, when moist (dark) sepiaceous grey, sometimes with yellow or reddish-purplish tinge (Mu. 10 YR 3/2, 3/3, 4/4; 7.5 YR 3/2; 5 YR (2/2) 3/2), not or only slightly pallescent on drying, not translucently striate, entirely micaceous to radially fibrillose-tomentose, glabrescent with age. Lamellae, L = 25-60, I = 1-7, moderately distant, adnate or slightly emarginate, segmentiform to broadly ventricose, white, then pink, finally tinged brown (7.5 YR 8/2, 8/4, 7/4, 6/4, 5/4), with slightly irregular, concolorous edge. Stipe 25-70 x 3-7 mm, cylindrical or compressed, sometimes broadened at base, white to pale or rather dark greyish brown or red-brown, always paler than pileus, silvery striate lengthwise, often twisted, sometimes pruinose at apex, downwards glabrous, solid or fistulose. Context brittle, concolorous with or paler than surface. Smell strongly farinaceous. Taste strongly farinaceous.
Spores (8.0-)8.5-11.5(-12.5) x (6.0-)7.0-8.5 -9.5) µm, Q = 1.15-1.5, Q av. = 1.3, irregularly 5-8-angled in side-view. Basidia 25-42 x 9.5-14 µm, 4-spored, clamped. Lamella edge sterile or (mostly) heterogeneous. Cheilocystidia 24-57 x 7-20(-25) µm, clavate to lageniform, rarely subcapitate (3-9 µm), numerous to scattered, usually mixed with basidia. Pileipellis a cutis with transitions to a trichoderm, made up of radially arranged cylindrical hyphae, with up to 17 µm wide, cylindrical to clavate terminal elements. Pigment brown, intracellular in pileipellis. Clamp-connections numerous in hymenium and pileipellis.
Habitat & distr. - In groups in living Sphagnum or on peaty soil. Rare. Widespread, but probably rare in peatbogs in the lowlands of W. Europe and S.Scandinavia. Aug.-Oct.
